Here at Mums@Work we have a very simple goal – to connect talented mums to flexible work. For far too long mums have had to decide between building a family and their career. No longer… we are here to help mums achieve that perfect balance between work and family life.
With the backing of Mackenzie Jones, one of the largest independent recruitment firms in the GCC, we have access to hundreds of clients and over a decade's worth of regional experience. This coupled with our amazing team of consultants, most of whom are mums, puts us in the best position to connect you with the perfect job!

Mums@Work is a wonderful initiative that fills a significant gap in the current regional workforce. Flexible working hours undertaken by professional people can hugely advance both their chosen workplace and the wider economy. We fully support the initiative and the women who participate in it, and encourage all others to do so too.
Managing Director, Bell Pottinger
Mums@Work is a fantastic idea for the region. GardaWorld is proud to support this initiative which will undoubtedly enrich the workforce. We understand that flexible working hours can facilitate an improved work and family balance for Mums returning to the workplace.
HR Manager, Gardaworld
In our experience, offering part time and flexible roles to women looking to return to work after having a baby is a really great way to tap into a very strong talent pool while being cost effective for an SME. The team at Mums@Work really get it – they are mothers and business women themselves. Great to do business with and we look forward to working with them again in the future

Maserati has a long history of endorsing women’s initiatives, having been the first brand to hire a female driver in Formula One back in the 1950’s Hence we are glad today to support Mums@Work, an innovative talent sourcing platform offering a wide range of expertise and much flexibility, which is needed in the current business environment.

Over 40% of qualified, skilled and experienced women leave the workforce to take on the additional responsibility of home, raising a family or caring for elderly parents. As their children get older and the responsibilities become more manageable, women start looking at getting back into the workforce but that generally means taking many steps back. I am a very strong believer in returnships and we as organisations need to ensure women don't leave the workforce in the first place. We should be able to support with more flexible hours and work schedules that allow them to do both. We are excited to work with Mums@Work on providing more flexible options for working mothers in the region.
President, Virgin Megastore Middle East & North Africa
At Estée Lauder Companies in the Middle East, 80% of our workforce are women. Women also make up 70% of our Senior Leadership team so as an organization locally we are keen to support such an important population of our staff to ensure that they can consistently manage a professional life alongside personal responsibilities. Companies need to provide flexible options for their female employees and we are happy to support an organization such as Mums@Work who recognise the same.
